I like trees, maybe I like them more than most people do, and maybe I like them more that I should. They provide us with oxygen, a sustainable building material, known as wood, great beauty to admire and a perfect place to hang a hammock. What more can you ask for?
In each city and town that we have visited so far I have seemed to bump into a tree that I could easily call my favorite, here are a few of them from Thailand.
This was my first favorite tree. Its ancient resilience jumped out at me while moseying through a park in Bangkok. I meditated with it for a while and I am pretty sure we are friends now.
Its size caught my eye but the friendly face in the bark was what drew me to this tree.
Standing alone without a single leaf, this tree had a certain je ne sais quoi…which I learned the other day is a term that the French do not actually use.
- This may be a stretch for a ‘favorite tree’ as it is not just one, but these trees were planted with a purpose and they seemed to be holding up well in the intense heat.
